Becky and I just got back from Chicago, we spent the week there attending the Top Producer Seminar. It is always nice to get away from the daily grind and refocus yourself on what your goals are for the business, and be inspired by meeting new people with new ideas.
Lots of speakers on all sorts of different topics, but mainly focusing on Business and Employee Management and Marketing our products. There was around 1200 people at the seminar, so lots of different types of operations were represented.
For my motorcycle friends, they even had a bike built by Orange County Choppers…well I am not sure you can call it a motorcycle….. they had SOMETHING built by the knob heads at OCC:

I took a picture of the pits (we actually weren’t supposed to) but for some reason my phone didn’t save it. I guess it knew it wasn’t supposed to take a picture of that!
Of course we also took a little time to visit some of the sights:
We also spent a good part of one day at the Field Museum:
